Three constituencies which were held by the SNP have now swung to Keir Starmer's Labour Party.

Glenrothes and Mid Fife have elected Richard Baker, with the Labour candidate winning nearly 16,000 votes.

In second was the SNP's John Beare, who replaced Peter Grant as the party's candidate after the MP decided to step down at this election. This election's surprise package, Reform UK finished third, followed by the Conservatives, and the Liberal Democrats.

Here's how the result went:

  • Richard Baker (Labour): 15,994

  • Debbie MacCallum (Scottish Conservative and Unionist): 1,973
  • Jill Mary Reilly (Scottish Liberal Democrats): 1,604
  • Ian Sinclair Smith (Reform UK): 3,528

Dunfermline and Dollar produced a resounding Labour gain from the SNP, with Graeme Downie winning more than 20,000 votes, over 8,000 more than the SNP's Naz Anis-Miah.

Conservative candidate, Thomas Heald, narrowly beat the Lib Dems' Lauren Buchanan-Quigley to third place. They were followed by Reform UK's Udo van den Brock and Ryan Blackadder from the Scottish Greens.
